I don't have a question at the moment. I had a question about whether "bear" was correct when used as a verb as in bear with me" I found the answer and much more on this site. I wanted to write a "Thank you comment" saying how useful this site is, but I was not able to submit one. I hope I am not wasting space and people's time, but thank you very much for this very useful site. Kind regards, Steve Iversen

    @WilliamD.Edwards At least 50 rep is required to comment anywhere (as opposed to commenting on one's own posts).

  • I tried to find the original question about "bear" and could not. I think it would be useful to have a link to that question so that users could see what kind of reception of a new user makes "the system work". That is, was the question a good question, or was no one feeling burned out that day?
